8) Chord Progressions - One Chord Songs (part II) - Augmented Progressions

[Post #8] In my previous post I presented an easy piano peace based only on one chord. I showed features and limits of a music made without a chord progression or chord changes. To choose a chord an start an improvisation on it should be a good preparatory study. You can even use only the chord scale varying intervals and duration of the notes.
Next step is to see how we can make a song or a part of it (for example the verse or the chorus) using only one chord every time repeated with a little change.

We start from D (the same chord of my one chord song of the previous post) and try to make a progression based always on this chord, but in each chord repetition I chance one note:
D / D9 / D7+ / D

These are the chords positions on the keyboard (left hand notes are in blue, click the picture to enlarge).


(instead of the note D of the previous chord we play the note E)

(instead of the note E of the previous chord we play the note C#)


This is the result with sheet music:

As you can see this simple sequence based only on D could very easly be a part of a song and in fact there are several example of famous songs based on it, the first two I remember are:
Sixpence None The Richer - Kiss me (verse)
Supertramp - Lord is it mine (verse)


In the next post I will show 2 more Augmented Progression.
